Disneyland Paris Photo Trip with rare photos(resized)

Postby neovortex2k » Sun Mar 22, 2009 10:33 am

Hey guys,

I am just back from a 5 day stay in the Disneyland Resort Paris. We stayed in Sante Fe (you know global ressesion and all that). We went for St.Patricks week as being there the year before last it's a great time to go.

The atmosphere was great and the ride time was excellent! The most we queued was 50 minutes and that was for Crush's Coaster running at full capacity and joining the queue at the very end. It is my new favourite coaster ever! It's brilliant. If you board it in reverse in the station the first drop is stomach churning. R'N'R did break down but was fixed within 30 minutes and i managed to get a few rare pics and video of the launch with the lights on. The queue time was at most 15 minutes

The Tower of Terror was excellent. I really enojoyed it more than Orlando. The lift drops in the same shaft as the 2 show parts of the ride unlike the Orlando one where it travels from the back shaft to the front one before it drops. Again the queue time was between 10 to 15 minutes. they have 6 loading platforms with 3 on ground level and 3 about so they load one level while the the other is in motion, very clever.

Indiana Jones was as good as ever with a 10 to 5 minute wait time. Pirates had a no wait time and a straight walk on. They haven't updated their version to include the new Jack Sparrow, don't know if they will. The do have two manaqueins that look like Will turner and jack sparrow but they were there before the movie.

Space mountain was again 10 to 15 minutes. The gun was broken for the entire length of our stay but still a great ride.

Wasn't inpressed with the extra magic hours as we didn't realise it only applied to the magic kingdom park and when we arrived we found out it was ounly main street and fanteasyland that was open.:-( we were not that happy. Other than that we had a brilliant time.

I'll try put captions on the pics to explain the rare ones as i'm not quite sure how to work it but here goes.

So let the pictures begin...................

Wooooooooow, resize alert!!!! I'm viewing at 1440x900 and that still looks way too big!

I'd love to comment on your photos, but they are just too big mate!

Will check back when they have been resized I think.

I don't think anyone runs a resolution big enough to view fully view these photos. But the photos were neat... I just had to Right Click and View Image to see them better. Makes me excited for my Disney trip in a few day down in Orlando!

Great Pictures.

When I was in Disneyland Paris back in February I had some kind of error on R'n'R too. The train didn't roll back a bit before the launch. So when the train was launched we had a big "hump" and my back hurted like hell.
